Madrid’s summer of festivals

The popular Madrid arts festival, Veranos de la Villa, livens up the city until the beginning of September. It provides a mix of popular and classical music, dance, cinema and operetta.

It includes the Fringe Festival from 13 July to 11 August, which is inspired by the contemporary arts festival in Edinburgh, and is open to all Spanish and foreign performing artists.

A photography festival is also running until 22 July with works by over 300 photographers from 45 countries. This year’s theme is “Context and internationalisation”.
